Airlie Beach Holiday Packages

Airlie to rise, Airlie to the beach! Welcome to the gateway of the Whitsundays, those dreamy vacation islands between mainland Australia and the Great Barrier Reef. This part of the country is simply jam-packed with beautiful beaches, exciting water sports and eco adventures.

While there are a few places you can start your Whitsundays vacation, Airlie Beach is one of the most versatile. Long a party town for backpackers, it’s recently developed some classy resorts and sleepy bits of town for travellers who are more mature,or those who have families with them.

Whatever your travel persona, you can enjoy this cruise ship hub from the beach, the boardwalk or a boat on the marina. Stay a few nights as part of your Whitsundays adventure, or explore the town all on its own. Either way, our Airlie Beach holiday packages are here to help. Pack your thongs and swimsuit and get ready to work on your tan!

Stuff to Do

Hit the road! Or the boardwalk. Or the beach. Keep your peepers open wherever you end up, because finding views of Airlie Bay is like shooting fish in a barrel. And speaking of fish, charter a boat and toss your line at some Red Emperor, Billfish, Coral Trout or Sweetlip. And then there’s always good old-fashioned spearfishing if you really want a challenge.

After all that angling, a relaxing swim is just what you need. A dip in the lawn-ringed lagoon should do it. If your fingers start to prune up, just hop out and bathe in the sun for a while. Airlie Beach holidays must live up to their name, right?

Airlie is the launching place for many a tour to the famous Great Barrier Reef. It'll take you about 3 hours by boat to travel the 100 kilometres (62 miles) to the reef. Join a tour or hire a yacht of your own and explore the massive reef by scuba dive or snorkel! The Whitsundays are also within easy reach. The swirling patterns of sand and crystal-clear turquoise water at Whitehaven Beach make it one of the most famous in the country! The typical journey to this slice of paradise is 2 hours by boat to cover the 55 kilometres (34 miles).

Nightlife

So what’s all this talk about the parties in Airlie Beach? Take it from us, a great night begins with a full belly. The resorts have some pretty good eats. Then there are the takeaway joints and pubs if you’re after quicker meals.

Did someone say pub? Now we’re talking! The town’s main drag (which happens to be called Main Street for easy navigation) has plenty of watering holes. Good thing many of our Airlie Beach packages include hotels just up the street, huh?

Where to Visit

Want to get away from the chaos? Take a hike! Seriously. Cedar Creek Falls is beautiful. Have a quiet meal in a quaint restaurant near Dingo Beach or Hideaway Bay—they’re just a few minutes away when you book one of our Airlie Beach car hire options. And by the way, no-one needs to tell us twice to tack on a Whitsundays trip to holidays to Airlie Beach—but we’re willing to tell you twice, if that’s what it takes!

Still got that car? Cruise up the coast and make the most of one of our Townsville packages. After all, Airlie Beach is the jumping-off point for all kinds of getaways. That’s why we have so many Airlie Beach package deals right here on Wotif. Book one now before they all squirm away. After all, the “Airlie bird” gets the worm!
